Even the “strongest” predators, armed with powerful venom and fast moves can pass thought delicate times. That’s the case of the molting period, during which some of these animals must change their external skeleton (called exoskeleton) in order to grow.
A small update about my recent trip to Borneo. It has been a great trip, with many new stories to tell you soon here or in magazine around the world.
One of the most fascinating forms of life I’ve encountered in Borneo until now is the weaver ants (Oecophylla smaragdina).
Patience is vital in the Bornean low land forest, and this land tiger leech (Haemadipsa picta) is a champion of waiting. But when it comes to “feel” the passing person, they’re the best ones.
